If you’re a fan of Hank or his music, this is a great stop. If you’re not a fan, it’s 50-50. If you're not sure, you should go.

Physically it is a small place, but if you take the time to read all the information it is a great collection. You could probably spend 1-2 hours here. Make sure you understand the photography and phone rules. Many of the exibits are one of a kind and pictures/phones are not allowed inside the musuem itself (except in the lobby).... More

My lady and I walked through here while listening to the hits of Hank and learning about his background. One of the highlights has to be the Cadillac. Very impressive

The museum itself is pretty small but it is full of all kinds of artifacts and information. There are letters, furniture, guitars, a couch and a lot more!

Very nice museum, full of personal items including blue Cadillac Hank died in. A very nice and very respectful tribute to one of the greatest singer/songwriters to ever live. They have a very nice gift shop full of great collectibles at reasonable prices. Museum is definitely worth a visit if you are a music fan!

The museum is filled with donated memorabilia from the hillbilly singer's life: performing attire, home furnishings, handwritten letter and many photos, along with the 1952 baby blue Cadillac convertible Hank Williams passed away in. No outside photos are allowed: rather a shame for a $10 per person admission price. Hank Williams souvenirs are for sale, but also what I would... More

Sorry but I wasn't impressed I love him and still have a lot of his music. I did learn about each person in his band and the fact he has a daughter.

An unexpected stop in this town allowed me to visit this museum. My arrival was not far off closing time, yet the lady was happy to stay open longer so I could take my time. The museum is an absolute must for any fans of Hank Williams. The lay out is mind blowing. The photos, music and exhibits are amazing.... More

The museum is a definite stop for the true Hank fan. There is memorabilia in here that has been donated by many people. This includes Hank's Cadillac that he died in and it has been fully restored. It is not elaborate or anything fancy just a lot of great collectibles in remembrance of Hank. Just a down to earth place... More
